A Virtual Run, Walk or Bike Benefiting Homeless Children

May 1-31, 2021


More than 1.5 million kids in the U.S. experience homelessness.

Children who experience homelessness often lack basic necessities, including a good pair of shoes. 

No child should have to feel embarrassed, discouraged or left out simply because they lack something most of us take for granted.

At Soles4Souls, we’re on a mission to provide new athletic shoes to every homeless child in the U.S., so they can stay healthy and fully participate in school. Every kid deserves to feel the dignity and joy of a new pair of shoes.

You can be a champion for a child overcoming homelessness.

Every $20 raised can provide a pair of new athletic shoes to a homeless child.

Here’s how it works:

For a homeless kid, a new pair of shoes means dignity, education, and health.

“For me, having a new pair of shoes… meant that I was worthy. It meant I had a choice when choice was such a rare commodity in my life. It meant that I could walk and jump and move without pain. It meant that I had dignity.”

 – Khadijah Williams, a survivor of homelessness and advocate for homeless youth
